Seeing Green...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. This week, we are seeing green...

Whether it’s spring in the air, or just the leprechauns showing up all over the local stores for St. Patrick’s Day, we are feeling a lot of love for clover, shamrocks, and green in general. Will the luck of the Irish be with you? Want to craft with just a hint of bold clover green? Perhaps feature your favorite green ink pad or marker in your next project? We can’t wait to see what you dream up this week!

This week, I decided to play a little more with my PrismaColors...
And since green makes me think of spring and spring makes me think of fresh change, I am going to scrap a page for my girls' album...

All about how I hope they learn to embrace change...

So with my patterned papers selected and my letters hand cut, I can now focus on my design! With my letters in place, I used my pencils to sketch out a frame, as well as to write the rest of my title. Then.... a little pocket for the journaling...

And since this is a photo-less page, that pocket is taking center stage! Now, I am going to use that White Pitt Pen technique again to soften my penciled border...

And after some watercolors, we are all done!

A pocket full of journaling...

Encouraging my girls to embrace change in their lives...

And now it's your turn!

  2. So beautiful. I really admire/love your album for your girls. All of my "mom's life lessons" are spoken, and though I have separate letters aside for each of my kids, I wonder...well. Anyway, this is beautiful. Love the border and the white pen technique, as well as the watercolors. Michelle t
